lyn47254

Berlin, G. Reimer, 1842. 4to. No wrappers. In "Journal für die reine und angewandte Mathematik. Hrsg. von A.L. Crelle, 24. Band, erstes Heft". No backstrip. A fine and clean copy. Pp. 5-27. [Entire issue: (6), 99 pp.]. ¶ First printing of this important memoire by Jacobi in which Jacobi presented his solution to the inverse-square problem.

"In a memoir written in Latin, Jacobi published in 1842 a simple, concise, and elegant solution of the inverse-square problem. This note argues that Jacobi's solution has not attracted the attention that it deserves and that it should prove valuable to teachers and students in introductory mechanics courses. A translation of the excerpt in which Jacobi describes his solution is given, and the method is then recast in the now more familiar language of vectors." (Gauthier)
